Willian: Hoping to turn out in England, Spain or Italy at some stage in the near

The highly-rated Brazilian has been linked with the likes of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in the past, but no club has been willing to match Shakhtar's demands.

That could be about to change after a number of eye-catching displays in the UEFA Champions League.

Willian has caused Chelsea plenty of problems in home and away dates with the Blues and admits he is looking to secure a switch in the not too distant future.

Following a 3-2 defeat at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, he said: "Of course it's important to play well against teams like this.

"One day I want to play for a big club here (England), in Spain or in Italy. I have said that in the past.

"I always try and play to the very best of my ability, not just in some games.

"But it is obviously important to do as well as you can against a team as good as Chelsea.

"In the past, Chelsea and Spurs have made offers and in the future, who knows? Maybe they will come back."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
